    Mass. Beating Expectations on Tax Collections
    NBC 4 New York

    Massachusetts is continuing to outmatch expectations when it comes to tax collections.

    State Revenue Commissioner Christopher Harding announced Monday that preliminary revenue collections for October totaled just over $1.9 billion.

    That's $27 million -- or 1.5 percent -- above expectations for the month and $86 million -- or 4.7 percent -- more than the actual collections during October of last year.

    Harding said that so far during the current fiscal year, which began July 1, revenue collections have totaled more than $8.8 billion.

    That's $350 million or 4.1 percent more than the year-to-date benchmark and $695 million -- or 8.5 percent -- more than the same fiscal year-to-date period in 2017.

    Harding said October's results were consistent with the administration's expectations for steady, moderate growth.
